Question Category where user can post and edit post but no one can reply

I want to have a category for people to post their bios where users can post a new topic and edit their post but no one can reply to those posts.

I have set global configuration to:
  • User Edits = Yes
  • User Edit Time = 0
and category permission to:
  • Access Level = Public
  • User Groups Allowed to Post = Public
  • User Groups Allowed to Reply = Super User
but users cannot edit their own posts - no Action button but a message saying that cannot edit.

If I set replies to Public then they can edit the original post, but anyone can also reply.

This feels like a bug to me - whereby if you have ability to post, that does not give you ability to edit your own post, and you need reply capability to edit your post.

Anyone got any ideas? (I have not managed to track this down in the code as yet, otherwise I would be submitting a PR.)

//and you need reply capability to edit your post.

I agree, I think there should be separated permissions for each function. maybe on K.5.1 or later

Current permissions:
User Groups Allowed To Post
User Groups Allowed To Reply

Suggested permissions:
User Groups Allowed To Post
User Groups Allowed To Reply
User Groups Allowed To Edit
User Groups Allowed To Delete

I think that it should be sufficient for authorisation for original post to be based on the same permissions as posting in the first place plus the global allow user to edit.

The only issue is that original post is treated as a reply for deciding whether to allow edit. I expect this to be a simple (possibly one line) fix - and if I could find the line I would put in a PR.
